Genovation GXE breaks own world record for fastest street legal electric car
Think fast electric cars, and Tesla is usually the first brand that springs to mind. Even though the Model S can be fitted with Ludicrous Mode, and even though it accelerates like a McLaren F1, it's not the fastest street legal EV in the world. That honor is reserved for the Genovation GXE, a reimagined Corvette Z06 that has now set a new land speed world record of 205.6 mph.

Is the Great Red Spot the source of Jupiter's mysterious heat?
Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, has never been short on mystery. But one question that has proven particularly puzzling is why the planet's upper atmosphere sizzles away at extraordinarily high temperatures when it is so far from the Sun. Decades have gone by without a plausible explanation, but scientists have now come across evidence suggesting the enigmatic Great Red Spot is acting as the supplier of this mysterious heat.

Graphene-based sheets make dirty water drinkable simply and cheaply
Engineers at the Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) have developed graphene-based biofoam sheets that can be laid on dirty or salty dams and ponds to produce clean drinking water, using the power of the sun. This new technique could be a cheap and simple way to help provide fresh water in countries where large areas of water are contaminated with suspended particles of dirt and other floating matter.

Single-motor bots crawl, swim and climb with a wiggle and a wave
Over the years, we've seen a number of robots inspired by the animals kingdom – from jumpers and crawlers to swimmers and fliers. Inspired by the movement of snakes, an Israeli research team has now developed a bot that's said to be the first in the world to produce pure wave motion using a single motor.

Weird glowing purple orb surprises marine researchers
Researchers on the marine exploration vessel Nautilus came across something rather remarkable on the ocean floor this week. Working off the coast of California in the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, the crew were surprised to see a mysterious glowing purple orb on their live feed and used a robotic attachment referred to as "the slurp" to sample the mysterious creature for study.

Lockheed Martin's Spider bot skims blimps to plug holes
Lockheed Martin's Hybrid Airship is one beast of a heavy hauler. Naturally, maintaining a vehicle almost as long as a football field takes a lot of man hours, but the company has a new little helper on deck. Its Spider robot combs the surface of the aircraft on the lookout for tiny holes before patching them up, thereby automating one of the staff's more tedious tasks.

Microscopic crystals reveal violent aftermath of ancient meteor strike
An international team of researchers has calculated the cataclysmic conditions created when an asteroid struck northern Arizona roughly 49,000 years ago by analyzing the structure of microscopic crystals known as zircons. The research could be used as a basis to piece together the violent pasts of other solar system bodies including that of Earth's Moon.

Emergency vest inflates and insulates for survival
Beyond the well-known Mylar emergency blanket, there's a healthy market of light, portable emergency gear and wearables built for fending off hypothermia and providing insulation in cold-weather survival situations. The XeroVest from Delaware-based XeroGear brings some fresh blood to that market. This emergency vest packs small and light and inflates into form, relying on air pockets and heat reflective design to create an insulating barrier.

White dwarf blasts lighthouse-like beam at its red dwarf companion
Last year, a group of amateur stargazers noticed something a little strange about a distant star, and before long, a full study was launched, with multiple telescopes, including the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT) peering at AR Scorpii. What they found was a fascinating binary system, exhibiting never-before-seen behavior.

World's largest amphibious plane from China ready to sail and soar
China has just taken the wraps off the world's largest amphibious plane to enter service. Made by the state's aircraft maker, the AG600 is around the size of a Boeing 737 and will be used to douse forest fires and rescue people in danger offshore.

spruce goose wing span is 97.5 m and the Saunders-Roe Princess Wingspan: 219 ft 6 in (66.90 m) with wingtip floats retracted. 209 ft 6 in (63.86 m) floats extended. I don't understand why they are calling this the World's largest amphibious plane... furthermore the Beriev A-40 is clocked with a Wingspan of 41.62 m (136 ft 6 in)...  and the JRM-3 Mars is @ Wingspan: 200 ft 0 in (60.96 m).... largest in Asia perhaps? nope : H6K4 is @  Wingspan: 40.00 m (131 ft 2 in)... can somebody explain the title?
